I've been infected !!!!!

Good Evening My Little Bellinis,

I recently discovered the Bellini. No, it's not a sexual position, nor is it a type of body wax or dance move. The Bellini is an Italian sparkling wine, usually peach flavored. So delish ! Senorita likey mucho ! I can only find it at Cost Plus World Market. They even sell German/Austrian chocolates in German packaging.

Anywho, KrippledWarrior nominated me for an award. Like I've said before, memes are like STDs. We just keep spreading ourselves around in the blogging community, and you all have been so generous with me. I feel so loved, and surprisingly, not so dirty !

Anyway, be sure to give a salute to Krippled Warrior. Not only did he fight for our country, but he got injured in the line of duty. Major respect to him for fighting for our country. Not only for being a part in making this country what it is today, but also so people like me who don't want to, don't have to.

So the rules of this little survey are for me to tell you 7 things you don't already know about me. You know how many of these I have done ? I think I've told you everything. But I will give it a whirl and tell you seven more things.

1.) I used to dislike French culture and food and I swore I would never go to Paris after hearing their poor views about Americans as well as my dad's experiences in Paris. I don't know what got into me, but my attitude changed and I don't feel that way anymore. Now I want to go to France. In fact, let them laugh at a silly American like me. I hear the value of the Euro is going down, I think they could use more of our tourist dollars..............

2.) I can be very outgoing with friends, and I may seem social on this blog, but when I am out in public alone I keep to myself and I find it very difficult to walk up to people and start conversations. I am not the life of the party, and it's easy for me to turn into a wallflower.

3.) I prefer to go to the movies alone, rather than with someone. I am also not scared of eating alone at a restaurant. In fact, I enjoy it very much.

4.) I can't stand it when people whistle, especially a man. I am talking about when they whistle a tune, and the better they are at it, the more it irritates the everliving shit out of me.

5.) I've skydived, but I would never bungee jump.

6.)I have my preferences in men. But the truth is, the men I've ended up in relationships with were not my physical "type".

7.) I have such a hard time walking in stiletto heels. I can wear regular heels, but not stilettos.

8.) They say diamonds are a girl's best friend, but I don't really like jewelry that much. My hands and wrists are so tiny that most fall off anyway, and my pierced ears keep closing up. The only thing I wear sometimes is the ring and pendant I inherited from my grandmother. The only thing I would wear religiously is an engagement ring and a wedding ring. If I could chose between diamonds and traveling, I would choose traveling hands down.

9.) I can't stand sharing the bathroom with the girls down the hall at work. If I see one of them heading to the bathroom I will walk the other direction or take the elevator to the emptier floor. Nothing against the girls, I just want to be alone when I do my business. I also don't want to be their when they are curling their hair or having a gabfest.

10.) Before I croak I want to take a camel ride in the Sahara Desert. My boss went to Egypt recently. He went for a camel ride and sent us pictures. When he came back, I asked him if he got a picture of the camels toes. He said that he didn't but that he got a shot of his own foot, (hence "toe" ) in the background with the came'ls shadow and offered to show me. Very cool.

And here are the 5 people I nominate to take this meme...................

1.) Red Shoes
2.) Mac
3.) LL Cool Joe
4.) Danielle
5.) Riot Kitty

And three more as a bonus............
Illy and Fireblossom and Mindy !

And for those of you that feel left out, I have five meme questions of my own for you. Think of it as my specially designed VD for you. It is your duty to rub up against someone in bloggy land and pass it around.

Let's see if it ends up back with me !

1.) Look at your list of followers. Is there anyone that you would sleep with ? Who ? Actually, that person can be a commentor that isn't technically a follower.

2.) What would you do if you were dating someone or were married and that person gained a massive amount of weight. How would you react ? Would you pretend not to notice ? Would you gain weight in protest ? Or would you dump that person ? And be honest !

3.) Cairo or Amsterdam ?

4.) Ladies............... Bret Michaels or Tommy Lee ?
     Gentlemen.........Jennifer Aniston or Angelina Jolie ?

5.) What would you do if your friend were dating your ex boyfriend or ex girlfriend ?

Okay, that's all for now. I just had a little shot of Nyquil and I'm getting sleepy..................

Besitos !


Ily said...

Yes, let's go to Paris and you can tell them you're with me, the Cuban...we'll be fine (unless they hate Cubans as well).

Seriously, I'd love to go Europe...but Barcelona would be my first choice.

Oooh, FB and I are bonus girls! That's so special...thank you, and congratulations to YOU, my friend, for receiving so many awards lately. You deserve every one of them!

PS - Can't wait to try that Italian sexual position or wine or whatever that is...Bellini. Sounds fantastic!

Fireblossom said...

We're the Bonus Girls, Ily!

There are a couple of guys where I work who are big-time whistlers. I think that you would probably run them both over with your car or something.

Thanks for the STD, er, I meant the award! That question about followers is going to be interesting!

Ophilia said...

A biker turned Sailor, turned biker. The Krippled Warrior Rocks.

LL Cool Joe said...

Hey thanks for the award! I'm well chuffed as we say here in the UK. Ok I say it anyway, well that not often actually, but maybe I'm not that often well chuffed.

Shall I shut up now?

Charlene said...

1. Yes
2. I would talk to them about it and figure out some new sex positions!
3. Cairo
4. Neither.
5. It's happened. I was still friends with both of them.

As to Paris, I am all giggly about the low Euro! Travel, travel, travel, spend while you can. It's got to irritate 'em.

Just telling it like it is said...

Well you are beautiful and funny a combination that a hand-ful of women might get in a life time!!! You deserve the award of coarse and I feel very blessed to have you come to my blog!! You take great pictures...OI say follow your heart and dreams and let you pictures speak for you...there is a big market for your amazing look....

mac said...

I really don't think I have enough room to answer question number one ;-)

1. YOU !

2. If I loved them, I'd accept whatever they looked like...and I like a bit of meat with my potatos anyway ;-)

3. Amsterdam, I think. I love their sense of social liberty there.

4. Angela is HOT, but Jen is sweet and cuter than shit. I'll take cuter than shit given thaat choice.

5. I'd tell him (or her :-P), "Treat her well. She deserves it"

Yanno, I have bungee'd but haven't been sky diving - yet. If I go, will you hold my hand?

Ain't nuthin wrong with a good Camel Toe ;-)

mac said...

I like the new background :-)

Candice said...

I love Bellini's!! Got pretty shitfaced on them at a work party once. I'm not proud of that, but damn they went down easy!

Danielle said...

Oh, I like the new look. Thanks for this my friend!
I hate whistlers too and gum crackers!

PorkStar said...

Jennifer Aniston

I have a hard time believing you are not the life of the party because you are. Just looking back when we were hanging out there is no way people would think you are the quiet, shy type.... especially when I was being defiled in front of other people : )

Riot Kitty said...

Oh boy oh boy! I will do it! Still on vacation though so give me a few days :)

Ditto about the jewelry (also have a hard time finding bracelets that are small enough) but still don't want to go to Paris. My parents have been several times and said outside of Paris the people are much nicer, but the food sounds god awful. I don't like lots of butter or any internal animal organs, so...I doubt I could eat much ;)

dadshouse said...

I have no problem eating in a restaurant alone, especially when I dine at the bar, but going to the movies alones often makes me feel sad, like how hard can it be to find a movie date? And yet... it happens to me sometimes. Good for you that you embrace the experience!

Jimmy's Journal said...

Wow, I'm overwhelmed that I'm so far behind in reading blogs. I'm of Irish-French descent, so I'm semi-obligated to like the obnoxious bastards.

Fortunaltely, I speak Spanish and some French aw well, so I can always change languages if they're offended by English.

Then again, they should appreciate the fact that they don't speak German themselves.

I've never received nor given "Bellini" as far as I know, but I lived through the sixties, so one never one?


Red Shoes said...

YIKES!!! Thank you... I accept and will answer these things tomorrow!!!

I love your answers to these memes...

Good night... :o)
